BCCI wants Tendulkar to decide his 200th Test venue?
Zee Media Bureau/ Chaitan Papnai
New Delhi: Ever since the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) announced a two-match Test series in India against West indies, to let the ‘Master Blaster’ Sachin Tendulkar play his 200th Test at home soil -- a few Indian cricket Associations have shown their interest to host the second Test, Tendulkar’s 200th, according to reports.
But if sources are to be believed, the BCCI has decided to leave it to the Little Master to decide the venue for his historic Test.
Meanwhile, both Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) have put in a request with the BCCI to stage the historic event.
But according to BCCI`s rotation policy, neither Eden Gardens nor Wankhede Stadium, Tendulkar’s home ground, can host the Test.
According to BCCI’s rotation policy, even though Bangalore and Ahmedabad are now eligible of hosting the 200th Test, Mumbai could be a `sentimental` choice for the 40-year-old batting maestro.
Few days back, even former India captain Sourav Ganguly pitched in his opinion for Tendulkar playing his 200th Test in Mumbai.
“It would be the biggest thing if Tendulkar gets to play the 200th Test in Mumbai purely on emotional grounds. He has all his friends and family members there,” Ganguly said.
And now that it’s up to Sachin to decide, the Wankhede Stadium could possibly win the race to be Tendulkar’s 200th Test venue.
